For a seeker, the knowledge of the Self is only a stepping stone towards the goal. To progress further on the path, the mind and intelligence has to constantly dwell on God, until finally discovering God as the one unmistakable presence everywhere.
But how can the mind dwell on God, while remaining active in the world? Ma enlightens us that exclusive love for God alone can make this possible. The Gopikas of Vrindavan, performed all their daily chores with great care, yet their minds were ceaselessly immersed in thoughts of Krishna - their hearts brimming with joy and contentment.
Ma says this is an ideal for any seeker. We should do all our activities well, but as an offering, for the pleasure of the Lord alone. The devotee who does all activity with full reliance in God, by his Grace, attains the imperishable abode!

Narayanashrama Tapovanam, an Ashram located in Thrissur, Kerala, embodies the unique tradition of Guru-shishya Parampara, disseminating Brahmavidya (Science of Self-knowledge) through regular classes, satsangs, and above all, through learning in the association of a realized spiritual master.
Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
